THE SPIRIT OF CAPITAL: A CONFERENCE ON HEGEL AND MARX

THE TENTH ANNUAL GRADUATE STUDENT CONFERENCE IN PHILOSOPHY

AT THE NEW SCHOOL FOR SOCIAL RESEARCH

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: MOISHE POSTONE

APRIL 28TH -29TH, 2011

“It is impossible completely to understand Marx’s Capital, and
especially its first chapter, without having thoroughly studied and
understood the whole of Hegel’s Logic. Consequently, half a century
later none of the Marxists understood Marx!!” wrote Lenin in 1915. In
1969, Althusser responded, “A century and a half later no one has
understood Hegel because it is impossible to understand Hegel without
having thoroughly studied and understood Capital.” What are we to make
of this challenge today? Are we now ready to understand Hegel through
Marx, and Marx through Hegel?

It is high time for a reassessment of the core stakes of the Marx-
Hegel debate. What would it mean to think the concepts of capital and
spirit together? This conference is a place to explore the internal
relations between Hegel and Marx’s philosophical projects. Some
possible questions include: how does Hegel’s phenomenology, logic,
philosophy of nature, history and right internally contain the
elements that Marx will use to decipher the world of property, labor,
commodities and capital? Is Capital a logical theory of forms or a
theory of history? How does Marx negate and realize Hegel’s project?
What is the role of labor in Hegel, and the role of spirit in Marx?
Does the development of history show the unfolding of freedom or the
unfolding of capital?

This conference echoes the early Frankfurt school tradition, with its
project for a critique of the social forms of the present. We
encourage submissions on a wide range of topics and thinkers; we are
looking for papers not only on Hegel and Marx, but on the critical
tradition of thought which they inaugurated. From the young Hegel to
the late Frankfurt School, from philosophy to politics, we invite
contributions on a wide range of themes that fall within this general
orbit.

EMAIL SUBMISSIONS TO: spiritofcapital@gmail.com

SUBMISSION DEADLINE is Jan 10th, 2011

Papers should be sent as word documents or pdfs, not exceeding 5000
words. Personal information including institutional affiliation is to
be sent in the body of the email and should not appear on the paper
itself or in the file name.
